On its website, Propain boldly calls the Hugene the "one bike to rule them all." Has the German direct-to-consumer brand finally cracked the code?
Neutral, intuitive handling
Lots of customization options in Europe
Sealed bearing covers
Less small-bump sensitivity than some bikes we tested
Ineffective frame port protection
Few customization options in the US

Incredibly composed rear suspension that doles out traction with generosity
Beautifully built, sleek carbon frameset that’s got a great shape
You can pick and choose parts
A little pedal bob when mashing the pedals
